A friend would say he’s impolite because he’s honest. But let us be wary: sometimes we think we’re being honest, but we’re actually already being rude. And he thinks he gets away with it, but not without hurting people’s feelings.
Sad. Told him this before but won’t listen. I think he just doesn’t care. Which is even worse. That’s the problem with smart, condescending people, I guess. It’s ok to be rude just as long as you’re right.
